Hunting for Truth amidst Mainstream Nonsense

In Truth or Nonsense, we offer easy-to-read, short articles — using reason and evidence — to rebut what we see as nonsense. We focus on subject categories where, in our view, the powers-that-be and the mainstream media are especially wrong-headed.

In Government, Markets, and You, we describe:

  • Why current economic and social policies facilitate stagnation, inflation, and social discord;
  • What you can do to protect yourself;
  • What changes are necessary for prosperity, social harmony, and the opportunity for every American to become his best self.

In Climate Change we show why the climate crisis narrative is false and harmful.

In Green Energy we show why the promise of green energy is false and why fossil fuel production should be encouraged.

In Science and Religion we show how science supports what the Bible has been telling us about the nature of the world. Also, we explore whether the idea of a loving God can be reconciled with the pain, suffering, cruelty, and injustice we see all around us.

In US and the World we explore what principles should guide foreign policy.

In Living Smart and Living Well we present ideas that could help you think better.

Ground rules for comments 
I strongly welcome comments, but  ask you to abide by the principle, “Always respect the person, never respect the idea.”  A thoughtful analysis of why the views  I present are wrong helps all of us get closer to discerning what is true, but civility must rule.  

The symbol of this website is the Hindu deity, Ganesh. Why? Ganesh has an elephant’s head and a human body. He listens well because he has big ears. He has a small mouth so he doesn’t talk too much. He is revered as the remover of obstacles and the deva of intellect and wisdom.
